No comic book villain comes even close to the way the Mad Titan’s Big Screen debut is being anticipated by scores of fans of the superhero genre. Thanos is indeed one villain everyone is rooting for. His purple skin may make it look like he is a rainbow monkey from outer space out here to distribute candies to the children, but rest assured he is not. Thanos is the biggest and the meanest of them all. Both in the comics and in the movie, there will be no one else like the purple Megalomaniac.
In the Marvel Universe, seldom has a guy come as close to being dreaded as the very bringer of death as Thanos himself. So that is why it has got the fans so worried at the same time as well. Who will die by Thanos’ hand? That is indeed the Million Dollar Question!!!!
In the comics, The Infinity Gauntlet Saga was one of the most defining moments in Marvel Comic Book History. Marvel Comics used to treat superheroes as invincible. They could get hurt or taken aback but they will never even for a second make it look like they could actually die. It was Thanos who put the fear of God in them after wearing the Infinity Gauntlet and becoming an actual God of the Universe.
The powerful infinity Gauntlet laced with the Infinity Stones of Mind, Soul, Reality, Power, Space and Time allowed him to control each aspect of the universe corresponding to their respective name. With the entire set, one could control the Universe itself. You can fly or summon lightning or have a genius mind, but you cannot win against someone who could just will you out of existence. How do you fight someone like that?!?!
While that is a question better left unanswered for now, Thanos is the subject of discussion here. How he deals deadly blows to Earth’s mightiest heroes might take some time to answer but we have the next big piece of good news – A full Thanos figure has finally been revealed. And it looks sick!!!!
Marvel Fans will soon be able to put together Marvel legends Thanos for themselves and have a look at a complete full body figure of Thanos. The Avengers: Infinity War Marvel Legends will each include only a piece of the puzzle that combines to form the Thanos figure. It was only Marvel’s Articulated Legends that showed us how a complete figurine will look like; having a comic book accurate purple color, while the movie version, unfortunately, sports a lighter tone.
Take a look yourself:
Infinity War BAF Thanos! (AKA Josh Brolinos) Assist by @westcoastfuntoys As with all ML MCU figures, the sculpting is legit. As with all larger ML figures, the articulation is limited. I wish we would’ve received a second non-smirky head but the likeness is fine. And he IS purple and not pink as the trailer would lead us to believe! What a relief. I’ll have to compare this to my other Thanos figures when I pull them out one of these days. @marvel @hasbro @hasbropulse #marvel #hasbro #actionfigures #toycollector #avengers #mcu #infinitywar #thanos #joshbrolin
The sculpting looks legitimate. The articulation will undoubtedly be limited as with all other larger Marvel Legends figures. While the smirk certainly takes us aback, that cannot be undone now. And the figure looks purple and not pink as the trailer would have us believe (Thankfully!!!). The figure of concern will also feature a fully attached Infinity Gauntlet featuring all six of the Infinity Stones. The full list of figures of Marvel legends that each includes a part of the Thanos figure is: Spiderman, Captain America, Iron Man, Taskmaster, Songbird, Proxima Midnight and King Cobra.
This is what each figure gets you –
Captain America: Head
Proxima Midnight: Torso
King Cobra: Arm (with the Infinity Gauntlet)
Each figure looks awesome in itself as well. They will surely sell like hot cakes. The Spiderman suit, in particular, features Spidey’s newest Iron Spider suit so expect it to be sold out within a few days. The Captain America figure feature Cap’s new shield. Task Master, King Cobra, and Songbird are popular villains but it will most certainly be Proxima Midnight, one of Thanos’ Black Order generals that will take the cake.
Avengers: Infinity War will be released on May 4th, 2018. The Official synopsis for the movie reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
